Whakataukī - Marae

Our whakataukī -
Mauri tū, Mauri ora

Mauri refers to the life force or latent energy found in all things. Mauri tū refers to stability and a sense of space for this energy, and in this context covers both communities and individuals. Mauri ora refers to the unleashing of this energy to actively support and create wellbeing.

This korero is a constant reminder to the MHF of our commitment to actively supporting individuals and communities to flourish through the unleashing of positive energy and strategies to affect wellbeing.
